Ripe and generous with lovely freshness. This is a very elegant Haut-Médoc that has excellent balance and a long, almost silky finish that makes it easy to enjoy right now. Drink or hold.
This richly structured wine manages to maintain balance and plenty of black-fruit acidity. Showing a firm texture that will soften, it's a blend of equal parts of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with just a touch of Petit Verdot. The wine needs to age further … *Cellar Selection* (RV)
The 2016 Lamarque has a very refined bouquet with gorgeous aromas of blackberry, cedar and pressed flowers that unfurls beautifully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite robust and firm tannin, but the fruit is so pure that you barely notice its arching structure. It delivers a wonderful, persistent pencil box tinged finish and a long, graphite aftertaste. This is a superb contribution to the vintage, just classic, damn delicious Left Bank Bordeaux. (NM)
The 2016 de Lamarque has an intense blackberry, cedar and gravel-scented bouquet that needs a little encouragement from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, and quite saline and spicy. The generous, concentrated finish needs to develop a little more finesse. (NM)
